STANLEY, Keith Neal. Dad was born on a cold December day in Stonewall, Manitoba, 81 years ago. He left home as a teenager to work in Ontario for a short time and returned to Manitoba where he joined the Army and earned his paratrooper wings. He and Mom got married in Winnipeg in 1954. In 1960 they moved west where they farmed for many years. Dad was always the happiest when he was busy building barns, houses, truck decks, etc. Dad and Mom had been married for 58 years when she passed in 2012. Dad took her death very hard and was always thinking of her. He was diagnosed with cancer in April and after a short stay in hospital he passed away on July 1st. Dad said he was ready to go and be with Mom. He leaves to mourn 3 children – Blair (Karen), Lisa (Tony), Cindy (Jet) and 6 grandchildren – Brianne, Curtis, Courtney, Lane, Deidra and Chelsea. He also leaves 2 sisters Marguerite (Henry) and Phyllis and many nieces and nephews. He will be forever missed by his family, friends and animals. The family would like to thank the doctors & nurses at Abbotsford Hospital and the nurses & volunteers at McKenny Creek Hospice in Maple Ridge – You are real live angels! Many thanks to niece Lynn and nephew Jack.
There will be no service at Dad’s request.
